9780008139612: The Longevity Book

From Cameron Diaz, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Body Book, comes a fresh, personal, and authoritative examination of the art and science of growing older and a roadmap for abundant health and resilience as we age.

When Cameron Diaz wrote The Body Book, she was on a mission to help educate young women about how their bodies function, empowering them to make better-informed choices about their health instead of heeding the advice of the latest headline or trend. So she interviewed doctors, scientists, nutritionists and a host of other experts, and then shared what she’d learned with young women everywhere in a comprehensive volume hailed as ‘smart’, ‘brimming with science’ and ‘the real deal’.

Once again Cameron Diaz is on a mission. But this time, she’s starting a conversation with her peers on a topic that is virtually taboo in our society: the ageing female body. In The Longevity Book, she will share everything she’s learned about the ageing process from top medical experts and researchers, as well as her own thoughts, opinions, and experiences on a topic that is as essential to our health as it is emotionally charged and culturally neglected.

The Longevity Book will explore what history, biology, neuroscience and the women’s health movement can teach us about maintaining optimal health as we transition from our thirties to midlife. From how growing older impacts various bodily systems to the biological differences in the way ageing effects men and women; the latest science on telomeres and slowing the rate of cognitive decline to how meditation heals us and why love, friendship and laughter matter for health.

The Longevity Book will offer an all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body ages – and what we can all do to age better. Cameron offers women a compassionate, informative and intimate tour through the next volume of life.

Review:

Reviews for The Body Book:

‘A radically different celebrity lifestyle guide [...] More of a body bible than the usual A-lister’s diet-cum-exercise-cum-cookery tome, Cameron’s book is a comprehensive, scientifically sound guide to understanding, strengthening and – most importantly – learning ‘to love’ our bodies [...] Very wise and extremely brave.’
YOU Magazine

‘If there’s any book you buy at any time soon, it should be [Cameron’s] book.’
Drew Barrymore

‘Diaz comes off in her book in the way you’d think she’d act in real life: bubbly and friendly. As a bonus: she’s actually done her research and is knowledgeable and fair.’
Jezebel.com

‘[THE BODY BOOK] is brimming with advice, tips and tricks and useful science that [Cameron’s] learned along her wellness journey.’
Self Magazine

‘...Diaz’s message is smart: your body is the best instrument you’ll ever own.’
The Daily Beast

‘Cam is like your personal life guru, telling you that YOU CAN DO IT in all caps’
New York Magazine

‘There’s definitely something about Cameron Diaz.’
Hello Magazine

From the Back Cover:

The science of aging, The biology of strength and The privilege of time

As soon as she hit the age of thirty-nine, the questions began. In seemingly every conversation, journalists asked Cameron Diaz if she was afraid of turning forty.

"As these questions about my age became a consistent part of every interview," she says, "I realized just how frightened we all are of getting older."

Her desire to learn more about the aging process led her to write The Longevity Book, an enlightening follow-up to the #1 New York Times bestseller The Body Book. In The Body Book, Cameron revealed her insights on health, wellness, and the importance of the mind-body connection in what became an essential guide for young women everywhere.

Now her mission to educate and empower continues as she tackles the next phase of life. Unlike so many books about aging for women, The Longevity Book does not take an anti-aging stance, and it is not focused on how to look younger. As Cameron writes, "I'm not going to tell you how to reverse the aging process in thirty days. This book examines how the aging process works, why we age in the first place, and how it will affect us physically and emotionally."

The Longevity Book provides a comprehensive overview of the female body over time, from those first gray hairs that crop up in our thirties to the menopause transition that can begin in our forties or fifties to the increased health risks--for breast cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, depression, and more--we face in our sixties and beyond. Human life expectancy is longer than it has ever been; we are among the first generations to lay claim to our forties as an extension of our thirties instead of a preamble to our seventies. But in order to enjoy this gift of longevity, it is essential to understand and prepare for the road ahead.

In The Longevity Book, Cameron shares cutting-edge research on aging, synthesizing insights from top medical experts with her own thoughts, opinions, and experiences. From understanding how growing older impacts various bodily systems to the differences in the way aging affects men and women; from the latest science on slowing the rate of cognitive decline to why love, friendship, and laughter matter for health, The Longevity Book offers an all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body ages--and what we can all do to age better.
